Life on the McGregor Farm has changed over the last 3 years…
Laurel learns happily ever isn’t a reality. Her relationship with Romeo is tense, her parents have moved on with their lives and her best friend Mauki is leaving on her OE. Then something unthinkable happens that rocks the foundation of her world.
This is not how her life was supposed to turn out.
Mauki is set to leave on the trip Mina always wanted for her but it’s so much more. For once she’s putting herself first but does she really want to find what she’s looking for.
As Mauki leaves, a number of people return to force the rest of the whānau to face their past.
All decisions create consequences…
This book, Feather from the Kakahu, does one very special thing: it gives us a unique and very contemporary New Zealand/Aotearoa book, where Maori culture and Maori characters work alongside their Pakeha companions to truly reflect our duel cultures and where Maori culture permeates every page.
